The world of perception has the structural feature which we name the foreground influence. The influence clarifies the relation between the damages of brains and the conditions of the patients. Furthermore, the foreground influence explains the relation between the condition of the non-damaged brain and the looks of the world of perception. The foreground influence, which is not causal relation, makes landscape appear directly without representation. The information processing in brain operates as the foreground influence like many kinds of glasses. We will be able to realize the naturalization of mind only after we can clarify the physical nature of information and the virtual dimension which information processing produces.
